Salt is Sneaky!


The recommended daily intake of sodium is no more than 2,400 mg1, that’s about one teaspoon!

Cutting down the amount of sodium you eat could lower your risk for heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and even blindness. That’s because, for many people, salt can raise blood pressure to unhealthy levels. To cut your sodium intake, you’ll have to look beyond the salt shaker — because many foods contain abnormally high levels of sodium.

A few sneaky places sodium hides:

  • Lunch and deli meats

  • Breads

  • Canned soups

  • Cottage cheese

  • Salad dressings

  • Certain breakfast cereals (both hot and cold)

  • Prepared meals (individual frozen meals or bagged prepackaged frozen meals, etc.)

Read your food labels to find out more — or better yet, shop fresh!
